Is plat really that toxic?

So during my placements I got matched with plat players somehow, and quite literally all the games I had with them wanted to open and were flaming too much. The jump in ego is so massive between gold 1 and plat 5 that I might prefer to stay in gold 1 when it comes to that. Why are they so toxic, out of all the ranked tiers I have been in, this is by the far most toxic.

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
